Notification for Running out of Material (or any paused print job)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Notification for Running out of Material (or any paused print job)

We really enjoy the mobile app notifications for started/completed/aborted print jobs in Cura. I recently noticed that there is even a notification for an improperly configured print job (wrong core/material). What we would REALLY like is a notification for a print job that has been paused for whatever reason - particularly jobs that have run out of material. This would be so helpful and it seems, to my naive mind, would be very simple to implement. Can this be done via 3rd party plugin now?

Only Cura has a plugin system (Cura Connect, despite it's confusing simmilar name, doesn't), so this isn't something that can be resolved with a plugin I'm afraid.

 

I think this is something that is on our backlog already, but I can't give any specifics about when (or even if) we will get to it.

I fully support that notification feature request as I think it is one of the major events a user should know of (keyword "streamlining work flow" - it's annoying to loose time due to not realizing the printer requests user action).

This is a fair request, I'll make sure it gets on the radar of the relevant people.

 

Although a Cura plugin will not be able to solve this, a small web server talking to Ultimaker Cloud might do the trick. In particular the cluster status endpoint. Note that this requires knowledge of talking to a web API and a cloud connected Ultimaker printer.

Thank you @ctbeke! I look forward to seeing it in a future release.
